My wife and I decided to try the Mezza based on a friend's enthusiastic recommendation. We were both VERY pleased. The food was excellent, and the restaurant's sommelier recommended the perfect wines to pair with our meal courses. Make a reservation early in the day -- the restaurant and bar fill up by 1900 -- they usually answer the phone... More

Mezza has a great selection of Italian dishes along with seafood . Good service and wine list. No rushed service. A staple at the beach. Make reservations. It's always full. We went with 6 friends and they all loved it. Pizza is good - one is enough for two people.

The menu was changed a bit ago; I remember it having more options. Having said that, the food was good, nice wine list and up-beat atmosphere. the front dining room had music with a band playing Gypsy Kings. They have a middle section that's a little quieter and the outside seating is courtyard like and brought me back to Europe.... More

When we visit Jacksonville we always ate here. Not anymore. Much to our surprise, the wonderful Italian menu had been replaced with a mishmash of entrees that were totally unappealing. We had an appetizer and left. Sad.

Mezza seemed fine for a causual night out. Food was homey and straightforward. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing special. Wine list was fine, but nothing interesting. Service was good.

My rating is due to 2 things: service & food. The server while very friendly & knowledgeable, took a lot of time in between & then disappeared at times. We weren't demanding but after dropping off food, it would be nice to check that we had utensils for example! I struggled a little with the menu trying to find a... More

It's been years since I've been to Mezza... Being celiac means many yummy places are no longer on the list. I was beyond delighted that they offer a GlutenFree menu! Not only that, they will also customize anything for the regular menu! Started with amazing service, ended with amazing food! Oh, they even offer GlutenFree DESSERT!!!!!
